一场披着法律外衣的政治判决

谷开来一案的死缓判决,更引发人们对中国司法的质疑。这是明显地告诉人们,她杀英国人在行为上有罪,在道德上是正义之举。

当然,对谷开来的审判,最令人意外的不是死刑或死缓,而是又一次让世人看到中国法律的倒退,在没有证人证据出现就匆匆读了几张文字稿便审完了。仅仅因受害者是英国人,就使中国政府不得不表演这一次审判丑剧。

杀了英国人海伍德的谷开来是中国文革之后,执政的共产党因以党法代替法律而几尽崩溃,便恢复了法律系课程时,她以不及格的成绩,被破格进入了北京大学。之前,她是北京菜市场卖猪肉的店员,别名“一刀准”。

If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
